Ms. Marmalady
Voiced by: Alysia Reiner
The main villain of the series, and a terrible chef. Ms. Marmalady wants to be the best chef in Puddlebrook, and is always cooking up schemes to foil Butterbean's success.
  • Bad Boss: Marmalady mistreats her monkey minions and blames them for accidents that were her fault.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's evil and proud of it.
  • Character Focus: Most of "A Fairy Happy Thanksgiving" is focused on Ms. Marmalady's perspective and she even gets to use the Confession Cam, which is normally reserved for Butterbean and her team.
  • Child Hater: She despises Butterbean and her friends and wants to steal business from them.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: At least to Cricket, who knows she's not a nice lady.
  • Dull Surprise: Most of her dialogue is incredibly monotonous.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In the Christmas Episode, she was appalled when Spork and Spatch stole the cake that Butterbean and her friends made for the Sugar Plum Fairy. She wanted to find out how they make it, not steal it.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Butterbean. Her recipes are bland and dull and mostly consist of the same things, while Butterbean makes a wide array of recipes. Also, she mistreats her workers unlike Butterbean, who's kinder.
  • Evil Plan/Series Goal: Put Butterbean's cafe out of business so hers can be the only restaurant in Puddlebrook once again.
  • Harmless Villain: Ms. Marmalady tries to be menacing, but she poses no real threat and none of her plans work because she lacks the team spirit that Butterbean and her team have.
    • "The Sugar Plum Fairy!" implies that she's not that bad of a person. "Fairy Happy Thanksgiving!" shows this too, even showing that she's capable of saying both "please" and "thank you" to Butterbean and her crew.
  • Lethal Chef: She is a horrible chef, which is why her restaurant is unsuccessful. She even states outright in "Fairy Happy Thanksgiving!" that "I can't cook. I don't cook." In another installment, "Poppy's Lost Cookbook!", she tries substituting salt in place of sugar.
    Spatch: Not sugar.
    Miss Marmalady: No. It's salt. But it looks like sugar, so what's the difference?
    Spork: Uh, well, sugar is sweet?
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In the Christmas Episode, she tries to dress up as the Sugar Plum Fairy to cheer up the main cast, but the Bean Team see right through her act. Of course, they're not angry with her.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Her usual hairstyle.
  • Punny Name: On "marmalade" and "lady," and also "malady."
